Therapy takes place one to one or in couples via various online mediums; socially distanced walk and talk (Richmond Riverside); or, as a four-hour invigorating kick-start in beautiful Kew Gardens.
A complimentary, remote consultation allows potential clients to explore how her blended therapeutic practice could support them in their recovery.

Plant-based filmmaker and music producer Jay Cox rediscovered his lust for life after a cancer diagnosis. After a tough fight and with the disease in remission, he didn’t need any more reminders how short life really is, or any more encouragement to follow his passion. He changed his diet, became totally plant-based and, with new-found energy, got back on his mountain bike. He also got his camera out again and began looking for places he could make a real difference. This reinvention of himself, his life and his purpose lead him by chance to Tarifa in Spain with endurance athlete Luke Tyburski as he embarked on an insane 2,000km solo triathlon in 12 days. The result was the Ultimate Triathlon documentary, and the revelation of Jay’s formidable natural talent.
Jay has teamed up with plant-based health professionals to help achieve their mission to promote evidence based nutrition education.

Vegan Organic Network
An educational charity established 1996.
The Vegan Organic Network is the only organisation in the UK solely working for food to be grown the veganic way.
What is veganic?
‘Veganic’ is a combination of two words ‘vegan’ and ‘organic’. It’s a guarantee that food is grown in an organic way with only plant-based fertilizers, encouraging functional biodiversity so pesticides are not necessary. No chemicals, no GMO and no animal by products in any part of the chain.
Veganic food is resilient to the largest problems facing humanity i.e. environmental destruction, pollution of the sea and air and soil erosion.
Veganic otherwise we are dependent on animal agriculture, chemicals, pesticides and herbicides.
In essence, veganic is a logical step beyond organic for those who seek safe food grown in a sustainable manner.

Women for Women’s Health
Women for Women’s Health (WfWH) is a voluntary service set up by UK based Consultant Gynaecologist Dr Nitu Bajekal, MD, FRCOG and Board Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician. Her mission is to empower women to make health choices that will help not just improve their own health but also that for their families, friends and community.
Information is shared through social media, blogs and open discussion, as well as via health events and talks for the public, doctors, workplaces and schools – all key areas to influence change.
Most (80%) of what doctors see in their clinical practice is related to lifestyle, with nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress playing key roles in major chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, cancers as well as in women’s health issues such as Polycystic ovarian syndrome, menopause, bone health, lifestyle cancers amongst many other problems that women face regularly. Dr Bajekal advocates following a whole food plant based way of eating for optimal health.
Working alongside other health professionals such as experienced nutritionists, yoga and mindfulness teachers, personal trainers as well as other senior medical specialists, Dr Bajekal offers the latest medical information about gynaecological conditions and gives nutrition and lifestyle advice to women all over the world.
Young people especially are at the right stage where making small changes can have a tremendous impact on their future health. Inner city schools are a specific focus of attention for the WfWH team seeking to energise and build confidence in young women.
